Earliest start date
The aim of the presented doctoral study program is to prepare graduates of medical, pharmaceutical and scientific faculties for work in the field of Military Radiobiology. To provide students with advanced laboratory technologies in the fields of hematology, flow cytometry, histology and molecular biology, which are necessary for the analysis of changes in the organism after interaction with ionizing radiation in in vitro or in vivo studies. To acquaint students with the processes after interaction with ionizing radiation at the cellular to molecular level and to teach them to critically evaluate the results obtained for future biodosimetric methods, for radioprotection and mitigation and for health protection against ionizing radiation. At the same time to teach students to compare the obtained data with data in databases and to get the right professional insight into the issues of Military Radiobiology.
The need to acquire these approaches and knowledge is very well pointed out by individual radiation accidents, where timely professional assistance in the field of radiation protection, knowledge of biological laws of interaction of ionizing radiation with matter helped reduce deterministic and stochastic effects of radiation at the Fukushima nuclear power plant Capturing data, their presentation and subsequent selection of sorting criteria is key in cases of mass radiation accidents. The Military Radiobiology program, in addition to the ones already mentioned above, aims to project lessons and generalize and take this issue into account in the training of its students.
